U.S. Rep. Andy Barr assigned to two financial panels

January 25, 2013 | | Comments Comments

U.S. Rep. Andy Barr, R-Lexington, announced Friday that he has been assigned to two subcommittees of the House Committee on Financial Services: the Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit and the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations.

“These assignments enable me to immediately begin making a difference for Kentucky’s working families,” Barr said in a news release. “I look forward to working with Kentucky’s community banks to eliminate the regulatory excesses that prevent them from making the loans that can create jobs, grow our economy, and get Kentuckians back to work.

“It’s far past time to hold Washington accountable for destructive policies which label some banks as ‘too big to fail’ – allowing them to escape accountability while taxpayers pay the price.”
